NEXGEN LEADERSHIP PROGRAM
*Winner of the Ashoka U Innovation Award*
what is it
The NexGen Leadership Program is an award-winning 8 week intensive program offering international social impact consulting experience and strengths-based leadership training for graduate and undergraduate students from top universities. The program, which runs through the months of July and August, aims to develop the next generation of responsible and inclusive leaders by challenging students to complete a social impact consulting project with a nonprofit or social enterprise in Peru, Brazil, South Africa, or Spain.
Immersing themselves deeply in the country of their choice through our full-time program (40h/week), students learn to work across different teams and cultures in order to effectively complete support an incredible organization while receiving group coaching sessions, project mentoring, and attending key social impact and responsible leadership workshops facilitated by Emzingo|U and local experts — creating a strong community that will allow them to grow both personally and professionally.
